I think this is great! But hands down the guy who should get it is the one who travelled to Japan from Australia for the gig! That shows real dedication :-)
I don’t want the poster for myself. I’m content with the unsigned version that Mike and I borrowed from a record store in Osaka. It should totally go to one of the fans whose first ever Marillion show was Osaka (or Kawasaki). We were a small but mighty crowd in Osaka.
Nice pic guys, will have to travel one day to see you guys, been following you guys since 1982, at least an album a week, must have for my ears. Keep going, never quit, and don’t go falling from the moon. Cheers from outback Australia, you guys rock
Congratulations for this great Tour. It is a difficult place to play and a long journey to make. A great effort for any artist, but a great opportunity and an unforgettable experience. Not everyone can Rock in Japan. Marillion rules!!
Just watching All One Tonight Dvd for the third time today... wonderful... just so wonderful. I'm 60 and music shouldn't make me feel so emotional like this. Thanks Marillion. X
I only started listening to Marillion this year and it's been life changing. I hope I get to see you one day. Love the poster ❤
I never win anything. Fantastic band what else can I say. Saw them last year in St.Charles IL. It was a unbelievable show.
The show in Kawasaki was my first Marillion experience. My guitarist and I were greatly inspired by your show. Hopefully you’ll come back to Japan soon because there are more songs I want to listen live!
If I'm going to keep littering all of my walls with concert posters, I might as well include the five best faces in rock. :D
I would like to win that póster because marillion is my band nomber one in the world and I the best fan Congratulations Thanks marillion for all experiencia all the se years.

I thank you...🇯🇵
Awesome! Would love to win this. I remember the first time that I heard music by Marillion back in 1988, and I've been a fan ever since. The first time that I seen Marillion play was at a small venue called the Zodiac Club in Allentown, Pa. back in 1991 and 1992.
Great poster. I would hang it in my office. Loved the USA tour in 2016. Converted me from a casual fan to a big fan. Great setlist. Helps that FEAR is my favorite Marillion album since Marbles of course.
Although I’m a newer fan of yours, your music resonates with me greatly. From Script to F.E.A.R., I can always find a song that manages to convey just how I’m feeling at that moment. Thanks for 35 years of great music, and here’s to many more!
I lived in Japan for 10 years, still travel there every winter. I moved there a few months after the 'tour' of '95, moved back well before these recent junkets. Sad me! It will line up one day.....
Started following the band in 1982. Always remember listening to the sound check in the auditorium in the Edinburgh Playhouse on the Script Tour. The opening to script by Mark Kelly put the hair up on the back of my neck. Love the band.
I come from Salisbury ( novichok central) Tokyo blade were our biggest band, that’s a real Japanese connection, fans of eighties hair metal check em out
Would give it to a charity we follow called reverse rett. They are having a auction in London next month.
It would be going to a good cause 👍
Years ago I thought it was all over when Fish 🐠 stopped singing.
How wrong I was what a cracking lead singer you turned out to be!
It would be amazing to win :). Would be nice in general to have posters / photos of the band for sale on the website. An Albert Hall one in particular would be ideal!
Marillion is an amazing band ... the first time I saw a live Marillion concert, it was in Caracas Venezuela and then I saw them at last year's concert in Italy- Rome
Woow, I have a perfect place on my "record wall" were i would hang it. But would be even better if you could pass Sweden and Gothenburg so i could see you again!
That is wonderful! And fwiw, I’d pay good money for a print of the band portrait where they are amongst the seats at RAH. Just sayin’
As much as I’d love it, I agree with Rita, try and find someone who made it a special trip for them. 😊
Was going to make a trip to Japan, but due to unforeseen events I had to cancel the trip. What I wouldn't do to get this poster.
We are back from a wonderful trip to Japan - thank you to everyone who attended a show there.
Before we head back into the studio, we thought we would remind you of the Clutching at Straws Deluxe Editions that are coming soon. Remember you can win an original Clutching Tour leather jacket if you pre-order from us and everyone will also get a hand signed print:
Following on from last year’s revamped versions of Misplaced Childhood and Brave, Warner Music are giving Clutching At Straws the Deluxe treatment.
The 5 disc package will include new stereo and 5.1 mixes of the album by Andy Bradfield and Avril Mackintosh. We are really pleased with these and think the stereo mix is an improvement on the original but, in case you don’t agree with us, we have included the original 1987 mix for completeness on the Blu Ray.
We have also included the 19th December 1987 concert at the Edinburgh Playhouse in its entirety spanning 2 discs. Most of this show is previously unreleased and it has been expertly mixed by Mike Hunter.
Disc 4 contains 19 demo recordings, including 4 previously unreleased demos of Hotel Hobbies/Warm Wet Circles, Just For The Record, Torch Song and Slàinte Mhath.
The Blu Ray also includes a 60 minute interview style documentary with all 5 members of the band discussing the making of CAS and the subsequent split with Fish, with Mick Wall, the journalist who wrote the first official Marillion biography.
If you are a fan of CAS and want to immerse yourself in all things Clutching then this release is for you!
The release on November 23rd will also be available as a 5 disc deluxe vinyl box set.
Anyone who pre-orders before the release date will receive a hand signed print (signed by Ian, Mark, Pete and Steve R.) and will also be entered into a draw to win an original Clutching At Straws leather tour jacket. ... See moreSee less
One of the first albums that made me a lifelong fan many, many years ago. It is still one of my favorites and I can't wait to see the video of the concert. I love H with all my heart, but it is the voice of Fish that began it all for me and am sad I never got to see him perform.
The “Clutching At Straws" documentary seems like it won’t be in the form of the last two where the band was sitting around discussing the album together with the producer. To be honest, I found these to be quite boring especially the one in the “Brave” deluxe edition, it would have been nice to hear more from Steve Rothery. It felt like Hogarth and Mark were keeping the conversation going with Meegan.
Anyway, I had my preorder in since day one. Really looking forward to hearing the new mixes. I hope the next deluxe edition we get is “Afraid Of Sunlight”.
Thanks for coming to Japan.I love F.E.A.R.album. We are already waiting for your coming back.See you.
Credit to the band for mixing up the set lists in the 3 shows for the Japanese fans. I’m sure they appreciated it. Almost like a weekend .
Voor mijn verjaardag besteld. Cadeautje van mijzelf, maar komt pas 23 november, he dan is Ria Timmner-Schot bijna jarig.
Can’t believe Pete is drinking that filth!
JPG shirt H?
